sachin hit a double century yesterday.my dove gets a bonus feed. what was that movie in which the daybegins with feeding pigeons? yes, dilwale dulhaniya le jayenge!(the braves carry their brides away) - like you. what now?- i want to say something important - but no one here takes me seriously.- i do, my friend tell me what is the problem. what you think of me..it's nothing like that. reacting to raghavendra's outburst?outwardly, he's a bit rough. deep down inside, he's as loving.that's the way he is.
that isn't the case. look,i'm not what you think i am. there's no such thing betweensahiba and me. you mean you don't believein traditional marriage. there is one more couple who doesnot believe in traditional marriage. hey, simran did you hear.they are like us. husband and wife but just like lovers. like shree faryaad.. like sasi-punnu..romeo juliet..- i know.. the rituals alone don't makeman and wife.
- it has to be a union of hearts.- yes. - isn't that so, karan?- everyone is so wrong. no problem. what you feel at heart,that's important! what the world thinks,that's not important. who cares? when i first metsimran in toronto then.. was it in a book shop? he has gone and noit was in a restaurant.
- strange folks! no one understands!- what's up? what they think i am, i am not!and they think i am, what i am not! - and they won't understand!- tell me, i can understand. brother-in-law. what, captain? in a fix? hey, get back soon.i can't wait any longer. sing, please. please. "i am lost in a wilderness."
"i am yours." "where my heart is." "i don't know." "here i am, restless." "on my lips, is your name." "i am a stranger in my own world." just look at what's going on! "ever since i fell in lovewith you." "i have been feeling so strange."
"for stealing my heart." "this is your punishment." "you have learnt how to pray." "i've learnt what it isto stay up all night." "i'll tell you the truth." "in the pangs of the heartthere is pleasure, my love." "hide me in your arms." "what is this longing?tell me, my love." "i am afraid."
"in this ecstasy, let us not makeanother mistake." what are you staring at? out there in the midst of a thousandstars, their shines one star that one? the pole star. i get to see itfrom my town too. listen. i'll still look at it.you watch it too. that way, a part of ourrelationship will still be left. leaving?
don't worry. i'll speak to your father right away.i'll explain everything to him. okay. - what are you lost in?- nothing. i was just wondering how strangethe ways of the world are. someone loses, someone gains. any way good luck captain. karan.. i just can't understand.
what kind of a joke is this? you walk in when you please, andyou leave at your own sweet will? who do you think you are? don't you want that too?that i should leave sahiba? don't you try to teach mewhat i want and what i don't want. dad, you're still getting this wrong. what am i getting wrong? someone walks in and sayshe is my daughter's husband. he comes with my daughterto live in my house.
he spends the night withmy daughter in her bedroom. and now he says that he is leavingher! as if nothing has happened! what's this all about?tell me! tell me the truth! what are you doing? is this howyou express your concern? you shut up. what's that noise?who is screaming? raghavendra. he's arguing with karan. and karan is going to walk out!
- good god! why is karan leaving?- could be a tiff between man and wife. raghavendra is making a mountainout of a molehill! karan! listen son. - please hear me out.- i won't! not a word! but you get this clear. if you evertalk of leaving, i'll kill you! karan! don't leave! don't leave my sahiba! she's naive. i'm apologizing to youfor her sake. i request you..
grandmother.. - what's happening to you?- mother. - don't you touch my mother!- out of my way! call the doctor! hurry! quick..- please call doctor, urgent. doctor, no cause for concern, is it? you should thank karan, mr. grewal. he gave first aid in the nick of time.he has brought her back from the dead. it was a major heart attack.
she is still in a critical condition.she mustn't take any kind of tension. she will come toher senses in a while. till such time that my mother hasrecovered, you needn't go anywhere. understood. thank you. thank you, buddy. karan..- karan.. karan..- grandmother.. son.. don't leave. don't leave my sahiba.
who's leaving? i'm not going anywhere.i'm not leaving you now. i won't. take rest. what did you ask for, karan?for release? - for your happiness.- will i have it? a prayer said whole-heartedlyis never refused. sahiba fall in step,or you'll be left behind. don't stop. not for my sake.go on.
not for your sake?it's for grannie's sake that i'm here. i hope she recovers soon enough.then i'll be on my way. towards my goal. this wait is getting too much for me. what is scaring you, sahiba? cast fear from your mind. some time you willhave to face the truth. you're being childish. how will you recover unlessyou take your medicines?
who wants to be any better? as soon as i'm fit and finethat son-in-law is going to leave. for god's sake! have the medicine. - i won't.- i will give you my sware. think it over. if you won't takeyour medicines, i'm leaving. give that to me. water. open your mouth. from you, i'll take anything. give.
we pleaded and pleaded,but you wouldn't listen. he says once, and you agree. he isn't only my son-in-law.he's my son. after all he is my buddy. wow, great.. "there's a pretty girl." "wonderful!" "in the house with a window." "she walked outall dressed to kill."
"that's when i eyed her." "if i could only talk to her.." "..my life would be made!" "when she walks with a swagger.." "..everyone's heart skips a beat." "everyone in town.." "..is talking about her." "don't you mess with her!" "this fellow seems to beout for the kill!"
"he's trouble.he's simply a wonder!" wow "calling for first love.." "..with passion in his eyes.." "..comes a wizard fromthe land of magic." "calling for first love." "let it sink in." "this is a strange feeling." "don't let it show in your eyes." "it's a scintillating feelingfrom head to toe."
"she doesn't have an inkling." "shall i tell youwhat i'm going through?" "she's coy, i'm ecstatic." "she's a wonder!" "just look at that face." "as pretty as the moon." - sunny! after potty, you take a wash!- no! i want sahiba to wash my potty. what's up colonel? fighting off mummy?but you aren't wearing your pants!
he won't let me wash his potty!what a bother. no problem. let me give him a wash.come on. - mummy! the water is so cold!- are you enjoying it? yes, you should get some practicein advance. say what sahiba? i'm telling you, your first bornis going to be a son. i want daughters. not just one. three! three! oh my god. so fast.
daughters? as if it's allin your hands? karan tell us, how would you likeyour daughters to be? i... the first one, exactly like grannie. those eyes full of fun, and the wayshe laughs.. just like a sparkler! - yes.- sparkler? - the second.- sparkler. the second,like my mother-in-law and simran. quiet, like a flower.
wherever she goes,she will carry a fragrance. - and the third?- the third.. the third is going to be my pet.like monica and sweety. you've pissed on his shirt!you shameless fellow! that's a good omen.you'll surely have daughters. your shirt is soiled.go and change. and what are you doing here?who will give him his shirt? go on! you're all grown up now!and you pissed all over him.
the children have grown sofond of you. they keep disturbing you. not at all. i enjoy it. really! you know,god creates people for each other. they only have to hit it off. - isn't that so?- you think it's true? in my life, this is the biggest truth. you've found a partner for life. i'll find someone for you.
but you've never said what kindof a man you'd like.. ..someone you'd like to marry.someone tall, like i am? or short? - short.- short. and his color, like mine? no? dark? - fair.- fair. and his hair?will it be straight? or..
- curly.- curly? sorry captain nothing can be done for you. but karan, you've never told mewhat kind of woman you like? i.. someone with long dark tresses. with eyes big enoughto mirror me. and at heart.. ..at heart she should beexactly like you
i am leaving. how long will you be away? - a year or two.- what? i mean, a day or two. that's great relief fromthe clutches of the wife. must you say that? if you hate me so much,don't ever come back - my brothers will take good care of me.- monica. "i'm tied to you for lifetimes!"- enough!
- karan, drop me to the station.- sure. - it's time for my train.- sahiba, you go along too. on the way back, karanwill have some company - we're going too!- no spanners in the works - you stay here.- considering this one's size.. ..that's some spanner! stranger, don't go.. for grewal industries, thisis the 22nd factory. sahiba chemicals. - congratulations.- to you too.
raunaq, whatever we do, we do itfor our family, for our children. that's right. excuse me, sir. yes, come in bhandari. sir, i've drawn up the transfer deedof your shares in the sugar mill. - show me.- transfer deed? yes. mr. raunaq has given awayhis entire shareholding to sahiba. raunaq. i haven't given sahiba a wedding gift.whatever is mine, will be hers.
after all she is my daughter. she's my daughter too. - are you missing preetam?- no. i'll be leaving too. grannie is fine now.what do you say? whatever you think best. will you miss me? afterwards, you'll remember me,won't you? remember? i can only remembersomeone i've forgotten.
i'll think of you often.you, grannie, everyone at home. sometimes i feel as if i'm not goinghome, as if i'm going away from home. then why are you leaving? don't! but i have to go. nisha must be waiting for me. what's wrong with the weather? what does nature want? sahiba, there's a house over there.let's go in. you're getting drenched sahiba.
so concerned about me getting wet?i'm drenched already, inside out. why don't you see that? rain is wonderful. it touches youand you are aflame. why are you standing out thereand getting wet? come in. look who's here. - a new pair of deer?- no. our first guests this monsoons.a wet, wet fairy, and a wet prince. she is my wife, sudha. greetings.- greetings.
by the way i am pranay. karan.. sahiba.. how sweet!- greetings. you're completely drenched. come inand change. you might catch a cold. - oh yes.- please.. please..- please come. pranay, by the way..- yes. he'll need a change too, won't he? oh yes.
- please come.- please come. nice sculptures. my wife sudha paints these easelswith the colors of love. how nice. have another drink. you'll feel warm. no thank you. this fire is enough. come on buddy, come on. the fire out there won't be enough.light a fire within.
else, in this weather,you'll turn to ice. will you stop talking,and let him have some rest? why not? let them rest. we'll rest too.what do you say? if you need anything,we're in the adjoining room. come on, now. relax. this is such a strange night. but it's exotic.
and what a storm! sometimes a storm rages within too. lightning strikes deep in the heart. don't talk like that, karan! you love someone else! - did you say something?- what? no. love is a strange obsession. everything else pales before passion.
people look for love everywhere.but love.. love finds it's wayinto lovers' hearts. hello! remember me? i'm the one you love. love is sometimes so distant,and yet so close. sometimes, so close and yetso distant. for one look, one would even die!as if.. like the dry desert sands thirstingfor the first drops of rain.
when it comes like a flood,it sweeps everything away. if it falls gently like a dewdrop,it will drown you! but thirst it never slakes. that's how love is. sometimes, it's a strange hunger. at times, a pleasurable pain. sometimes, it makes me feelas if i've won everything. then again, i've lost it all. forget it.
you won't understand all this. you can't understand what love is,unless you're in love. so easy it was for youto let it all out! and here.. ..in my heart.. ..the heart is here, isn't it? why do i hear your nameevery time my heart beats? whenever i look at you,why am i breathless? time comes to a standstill!why, oh why?
why do you have to beso lovably nice? why, why, why? god.. i love you karan. i love you. "madness." "madly in love with you." "every moment i think of you." "in refusal lies acceptance?"
"is this love?" "i'm footloose." "it's time for the madness to begin." "in time for the eyes to meet.." "..the skies will touch the earth." "at nature's call.." "..one look at you, and i went mad." "ecstasy has arrived." "i don't know when day isi don't know when night comes."
"i've lost hold of myself.love won't let me rest in peace." "i'm going to pieces." "but in your arms i will blossom." "i'm no more in my senses." "never will i forget thisrain-drenched night." good morning. it's morning.. i never realized. - all night the storm raged.- the roads are clear now. - we should be leaving.- sure. after you've had tea.

and looking at the path.. "this distance i can bear no more" "every moment of this separationa suffering" "loneliness is even more painfulit sets my body, my mind afire" "oh, will someone tell him?" "this separation i can bear no more" "his lips i have to kiss wet" "my lover, so charming" "no one like him"

what if you were to fall unawares? would you not hurt yourself?you'd hurt yourself worse come with me.today i will tell you someting. look, these are the birds i love. i caged them. i fed them lovingly then i realized. if i love them,i mustn't hold them in cages i set them free. but at sunset,they all came back to their cages now i think i should've shutthe doors to the cages..
to prevent them from returning. ever! why does one man love another so much? anyway.. if you have decided to go you are free to go. please go. karan. don't go don't leave me

nisha.. oh my god... oh my god...i am so happy to see you. i don't believe it! you're back! i can't believe it. did you miss me? do you know how long i waited? do you know how late you are? i would've come earlier.
but i met a girl on my way. captain, have you been havingan affair? she was in trouble. i went to drop her home. they took me for her husband. you've no idea how i made it back. sounds interesting. you know nisha.. it was as if there was a speedbreaker.placed right in the middle of my life.
as if i was being told, look aheadthat's where you have to take a turn. what was so special about the turning? i nearly found a home there. happenstance. i found a sense of belonging amongst strangers. forget it. you tell me. sam is out shooting.he should be back by evening. nisha, i want to tell you something.- say it
excuse me madam. you are getting late. they've been calling. you're expected at the shooting.- i am coming. i am so sorry i will have to go. i must go. but this evening, we meet.oh yes, there's a party tonight and for you, a surprise bye karan.- bye. and welcome back. keep in your eyes.
the face of your lover is in your eyes.in my breath my lover resides. sahiba, in darkness a person for a moment or two.. ..you can stand in the darkness,you may rest. but life, you can't live in darkness. life? what life? you should not talk like this.
why did you play a dim sum game? why did you fall in love with him? love? who has a hold on love? it just happens he came into my life like a storm. and i.. like a dry leaf, i got carried away. period.
life doesn't stop at incidents. time. time is the greatest healer. by and by.. you will forget karan my memories of karan.. are as deeply entrenchedas an idol in a temple what is a temple.. ..bereft of it's idol?
enough. now cut off your heart. he isn't going to come back. he will. my heart tells me he'll come. he'll stand before me and he'll say.. i am captain karan.. rajput rifles regiment.. i am crazily in love with you. and teach such a lesson...
few words of love.. - few words of love..- what you're doing isn't right? excuse me... here you are. what are you staring at?are you happy? you haven't told me whatthis party is all about that buddy is a surprise. hi..hi.. actually you know what... karan...
sameer... hi buddy, welcome home. back..once again we are together. sam, why are you late? sorry, same business.. oh my god, you are looking great.seriously. thank you darling.. what's the matter, karan? nothing.
haven't you told karan we're married? that was my surprise for him. actually i was waiting for you, sam. will you keep staring?won't you congratulate us? congratulations...- thanks buddy. and what a day to arrive. here you are, and we'releaving for america tomorrow. and you know what nishais the first indian model.. ..to be selected forthe ford advertising agency.
hi, sam.. hi.. all set for tomorrow. great atchivment., congratulations nisha.- thank you. why did you come out here, karan? what happened? karan, look at me. could you possibly? i am so sorry.
but why didn't you ever tell me.. ..that you're in love with me? i thought you're only a friend. friend i was. friend i am. friend i will always be. for friendship's sake,i will tell you something if you love someone, make it apparent. else, it might be too late.
we girls are like creepers.we need support. we cling to what ever we can find. in sam, i have found support. that support. i have lost. i feel as if i've lost everything! no karan! no! this is not the end. you have a whole life ahead of you.
and nature shows the way. you know it. that's the path we tread upon. someone's loss is someone's gain. that's the way life is. promise me karan. that you will move on. promise me. how strange life is.. ..someone loses, someone gains i can see that star from my town too.
once i'm back home, i'll look at it. you watch it too. a part of our relationshipwill still be left "in a few words, i tell youthe story of my love" "come, be the king of my hearttake me for your queen" "i have lived life before" "but in life, there wassomething amiss" "we have come together, my love.at heart, we've agreed too" "you are my love"
"never leave me.never be cross with me" "i am naive. i have been childish.but you are the king of my heart" "take me for your queen" "i am the king of your heart.you are my queen" "you colored me in your hues,you drove me mad.." "it was you, it was in your eyes" "i am driving myself crazy" "is this the outcome of beingin love with you?" "has the love-crazed heartever listened to reason?"
god, bless you. come sahiba. my blessings, for all of you. come sahiba.- may god deliver you. may god bless you always. shall we begin the rituals? the boy and the girlmay exchange rings. 'sanskrit chant.' what happened sahiba?
call the doctor. hear her? now she's cooking up a new story! tejeshwar's son vicky is a murderer! i saw him with my own eyes, grannie! and he drops right into your lap? asking to marry you! who's going to believethis fancy tale? but it could happen, couldn't it?
he could be the one.. quiet, raunaq. it's simple.she doesn't want to marry vicky. she's just making excuses. i'm telling the truth. sure! she picks up someone on the way,and she says he's her husband. that was the truth. and now she says thatthe man she is about to marry..
..is a murderer? of course, that toois the truth. grannie i... amrit, ask this girl what she wants. why is she bringing us to disgrace? why don't you give me some poison? because as long as i'm alive.. ..no one can stop this marriage. no one.
vicky, what's your problem?you should've disposed of the corpse. why did you have to keepit as a memento? and here's a new problem. sahiba is the onewho saw you in the act. dad, i think i should've killed her.should i do it now? don't be silly, vicky. that murder case isn't closed yet. we're nobility by name only.but our coffers are empty. for us sahiba isn't only a name.
she's our checkbook into millions. all our lives, we will be ableto live off her. what if she opens her mouth? once she is married to you.. ..she will fast for you're well being. she won't send you to the gallows. this wedding shouldpass off without hitches. how dare you set foot in this house? you enter my house and youdefile the honor of my family!
you took advantageof my courteousness! hit me. to your heart's content. my misdemeanor is as such.- misdemeanor? you have deceived us.you betrayed our trust! you ridiculed us! what a lie! why didn't you tell the truth? i tried. no one listened.
even i became a bit greedy. never had a family, you know. of these relationships,i was oblivious i have wronged you.but i did it unwittingly. i have come back to atone. what you have done is unpardonable! get out of here! else..- i will. but please let me see sahiba.for once. don't you dare utter her name!
she is getting married. what?- yes. she's getting married no! please don't do this! don't do this! father... when i came here the first time,it was for the sake of a friendship. but now i stand before you..
..for the sake of my love for sahiba. hold your tongue, you ingrate!or, i'll kill you! leave me! let go! out of my way! go away, karan! go away beforeall hell breaks loose! my daughter is going home,with her husband. just go away! go! don't you even stop to look backat this house! get it? get out of here!
sister sahiba... karan is here "god, why give me a heart?" "why give me ioneliness to suffer?" "strange are your ways" "i have no one to listento my pleas" "what have i done?" "why am i damned?" "where is the one.i want to tell what i feel?"
"so far away.." "where is the one who promised mea world of my dreams?" "the moments of the past.." "..do not dig up" "oh desire, do not destroy us!" "seas of tears, now dry" "pray, we do not meet again" "time is stilled" "endless pain"
"every trace of love, wiped out" "oh what have i doneto deserve damnation?" "without youi'm drained of life" "the light has gone outof my life" "hearts once broken,are never mended" "god be damnedfor breaking hearts" "some angst, some grief,some prayer, some anguish" "one who has never lovedknows not this pain" "no lip speaks the painthat the heart feels"
"the flames of passionextinguished" keep this sweetmeat here. do it fast. why is the handset still lyingon the table? i told raunaq to carryit over to the bridegroom's.. ..to formalize the engagement. but this raunaq.. raunaq, raunaq. raunaq, didn't i tellyou to deliver these sweets?
why haven't you gone? please stop this wedding.- what? what are you saying? use a knife if you want to breakyour daughter's heart. don't force her to gowhere her heart won't.. go along with her body. raunaq, talk sense. you won't realize whata father's responsibility is.. ..when it comes toa grown-up daughter.
that's because you haven'tany children of your own. what a preposterous statement! you mean sahiba isn't my daughter? shall i tell you something? my love for her is far greater thanyour blood that runs in her veins. the first time i held herwhen she was a baby.. i thanked god for not giving me a baby ..because i might never havebeen able to love to my own as much. i reared sahiba.
like a tree rears a creeper.. her every heartbeat i know. today, she is sobbing.. and that pain i can feel here!and i can't bear this pain any longer i beg of you! call off this wedding.please call it off! remind me again raunaq,that you are my brother! else, i'm going to send sahiba awayover your dead body! ronnie.. well done, children!
is this what i have lived to see? i beg of you. let sahiba go away with dignity. after that, you can dowhatever you like. what's up, uncle raunaq?why have you brought me to the temple? why does one go to a temple?to stand before god, isn't that so? why did this happen, karan? after youwent away, my whole life went awry! do you know whomi'm being married off to? uncle raunaq has told me everything.
you aren't going to marry a murderer dad just won't believe me. my brother is hell-bent. you have only one way out.take sahiba with you, and run! wherever. just go somewhere. we can run away, and we'llmake a life for ourselves. what about the relationshipsthat we'll ruin in the process? i don't think this is the right wayto go about it. right or wrong, i don't know.
but for the sake of yourlove you must make this compromise. every religion eulogizes love. we won't let selfishness tarnish it. as far as compromise is concerned,for me this is a holy war. win or lose.. ..but i shall not make a compromise. as long as god is with us.. ..you will come to no harm. keep the faith.
much-married that you already are,come on, formalize this one. make sure the veil coversmy face properly. you want to wearthe bridegroom's veil? i'm going to make you wearthe hangman's noose! let go of my son! it's for the sake of her inheritancethat i'm putting up with you. she even saw me in the act of murder. once the wedding is over.. ..sahiba's story is over.
you ingrate! who needs enemies?friends like you are enough. traitor! i'm goingto pay you back for this.. what's the hurry, yogi? let'sget over with the wedding first.. i'm not about to let yourevil design succeed, singhal. i have to succeed, yogi. for us,sahiba is a matter of life and death. unless your sole heir comesinto my family, i'm ruined. i've come for my daughter-in-law.and i will take her away. let go of my dad.else, i shoot him.
i said leave him. the honor of this familyis now in your hands. only one thing i beg of you.do not bring us to ridicule. my best wishes! my best wishes on sahiba's wedding but i'm afraid you won't be ableto attend your daughter's wedding. as long as i'm alive,i won't let this wedding happen. that's provided you're still alive i was just telling my son thathe mustn't leave any evidence behind.
not a shard of evidenceis going to be left here. as soon as the weddinghas begun.. ..my men will start the fireworks.they will set this mill on fire. as the wedding proceeds,so will the fire here. while bride and groom take their oathsby the fire.. ..the fires here will engulfthe two of you. come son the marriage procession has come.the marriage procession has come. it was great fun.
come. it's time. call the bride's father.he will give the bride away. - where is he?- where has he gone? - raunaq- yes. everything has beenburnt down. father.. all this wealth means nothing.my daughter is my true wealth. if i cannot save her, i will neverbe able to forgive myself. please rise.
religious chants. run. run. damn! - what are you up to?- take sahiba inside. brother, what has happened? bash him up! bash him up.. hit him. sahiba.. sahiba..
doctor.. we tried everything possible mr.garewal. still there is nosign of any improvement. nothing can be said yet let's hope for the best. remember.. ..you told me thatyou can't live without me? you remember, don't you? and today..
..today, you want to leave me? not like this is this the way? sahiba... sahiba, if you leave me.. ..i will be lonely again. i will be left all alone, once again. please don't leave me. don't leave me.
i never realized my daughteris so deeply in love not all the books in the worldcan give as much wisdom.. ..as knowing what love means bring the car over. i'm hurting!- careful. sister.. slowly.- oh what am i to do? step aside.- dad! don't worry my darling,you're going to be all right.
silence! it's going to be a daughter!- just like mother. be careful.
